Acupuncture (針灸) and Chinese Herbal Medicine (中藥)
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been practiced in China for more than 2000 years and plays an important role in the medical history of the world. However, it is different from the modern medicine originating from the western world.
TCM theory is based on the knowledge of the patient in the context of the whole organic body, emphasising the holistic, natural, comprehensive patient-centered treatments.
The very unique feature of TCM is that it goes to the root of a problem not just symptomatic control. It also enhances the intrinsic vital energy for health maintenance and disease prevention.
Based on yin-yang and five-elements theories, TCM practitioners utilise special techniques to tonify, detox, warm up and cool down different body systems – with the goal of restoring the body’s imbalance back to a healthy status.
